    Actually I can’t memorize without understanding but I noticed that a lot of people do it very easily.
    I asked a friend how he does it he said that he just needed to read it repeatedly (as you said). He was used to studying like this from an early age, so for him it was natural.

    Im in the same boat, my current class mates tell me they just read and memorize (they have also been doing it from early age). However when I ask them to explain something they have absolutely no idea, and somehow do well on exams.
    Im working on figuring out a better study strategy to make it easier on myself and to better utilize my time. I used to read lectures, then watch video’s and take notes. However I realized that I do not have the time to do this since our work is so compressed and detail rich.

    Will defiantly try some new techniques and see if I can find a specific one that works best for me ๐Ÿ˜Ž
